Let's explore The Hermitage museum!
It is ironic that the Hermitage – the grandest museum in the world, enormous and labyrinthine, with a collection of three million items sprawling across five buildings and admired by more than three million visitors per year – derives its name from the French word ermitage, meaning the 'abode of a hermit'.
I'll show you the gems of the Hermitage collection!
I study at tour guide courses and show you a short way to reach the gems of the collection and tell you secret stories about it!

MEETING POINT: Protected content

You can buy tickets at the ticket terminals for the full price Protected content which are located in the Great Courtyard of the Winter Palace (lefthand side after the entrance arch) and skip the entrance queue. Or buy benefits tickets for Protected content (you should have Russian citizenship or be a student, please bring a document to prove it) at the ticket offices inside the museum. It should be noted that you cannot buy benefit tickets at the terminal.
If you plan to visit The Golden room or Brilliant room after our tour, you should buy tickets for that at the same time when you buy your entrance ticket.
